    I'm not too sure about the veracity of this, but I heard there are a few law firms out there that also dabble in select areas of banking, just wondering if anyone could confirm this?

    Why would you want to work for a law firm, who dabble in a bit of corp finance on the side? Either work for the real deal or go into corporate law...

    Ideally I'd like to work in both at some point in my life, but I'm intersted in law firms because I'm not too keen on the whole BB scene, and I would prefer to work somewhere more middle market.

    Never heard of this. Pretty sure magic circle wouldn't touch this. Also have no idea why a firm would want to take banking advice from lawyers.

    What do you dislike about the 'BB' scene? It's not too dissimilar to magic circle law firms.. Also apply to the 2nd/mid tier IB's/law firms if that's the case

    Meh, I'd just prefer to work in a boutique tbh.

    On that note, I hear about lawyers moving into banking all the time, but how easy is it for a banker to move into lawyer-ing?

    number of lawyers moving has been falling. If you want to move the other way you'd have to do a law coversion if you didn't do law, then the LPC then a two year training contract. It's hard and also pointless in my opijion. It would be more expensive but more interesting to go to the states for three years and do a JD.
